#5802 new task

Implement "checkref" like validation in the engine.

Cc: Patch: Phab:D2797


We currently have a perl script that parses our data files and checks for mistakes. A python port exists at Phab:D2849.

The problem with this approach is that:

  • It requires an external tool, and installing ever more dependencies.
  • Any change to VFS or template parsing must be reinvented in the script file
  • It is more difficult for modders to run.

Re-implementing it inside the engine would make it more efficient.

Work has begun at Phab: D2797
